Comments

Curated this: Added both club soda and tonic, which were in the instructions but not in the recipe. Thanks,  Zachary


Agreed. Like a minty gin & tonic. Wondering how it would taste with less simple syrup and slightly more chartreuse (we cut the syrup in half already, not being fond of overly sweet drinks). Also, will try it with muddled mint. We used Navy Hill soda + tonic, which seemed to work well.
